Camera review - Bird hide test

See our comparison galleries for the Nikon Coolpix D90, Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28 and Canon PowerShot SX10 IS

We tested the following cameras looking out from a local bird hide, in good light. We didn't fiddle about too much, really just lined the targets up and took the picture, with focus, exposure and everything else set to automatic. The images have not be tweaked with any auto adjust features, so you can make you own minds.
